Have you ever thought of writing to us about what Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound has done for you?

“I am stronger and feel fine.”  “I took Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound because I was tired and run down.  I had headaches and no appetite and was troubled for two years with sleeplessness.  I tried many medicines but nothing did me any real good.  While I was living in Washington I was recommended by a friend to take the Vegetable Compound.  I am stronger and feel fine since then and am able to do my housework.  I am willing for you to use these facts as a testimonial.”  Mrs. J.C.  Greaves, 771 Hornby St., Vancouver, British Columbia.

After being married sixteen years” “Seven years ago I took Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and after being married sixteen years became the mother of a sweet little girl.  I had longed for children all the while and wept many a day and envied every woman with a child.  I was thirty-six years old when my baby was born.  I recommend Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound to any woman who is ailing with female weakness.”  Mrs. J. Naumann, 1517 Benton St., St. Louis, Mo.
